Today, the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) launches ‘La mare de la ciència’, its first science podcast in Catalan.
During the second half of July, the PRBB will publish six episodes that make up the first season of ‘La mare de la ciència’. This is a short narrative podcast (15 minutes), where Marta Vila, from the PRBB’s communication department, leads us through the research and stories of six researchers located at the PRBB. A very personal look, to talk about science and the people working on it.
